The Lucent Heated Mitts are waterproof, windproof and breathable mitts with a rechargeable battery powered heating system. Perfect for on the slopes or ice climbing during cold winters.
Outdoor Research says: WARM HANDS WITH THE TOUCH OF A BUTTON If you’ve struggled to find gloves that keep your hands warm in bitter winter weather, turn to the Lucent Heated Gloves and Lucent Heated Mitts. Built with ALTIHeat™ — a rechargeable battery-powered heating system that provides staying power when you’re determined to be on the mountain from first chair to last call — the Lucent Heated Gloves and Lucent Heated Mitts provide staying power for the coldest cold smoke.
GORE-TEX® inserts make them waterproof, and lightweight synthetic EnduraLoft™ insulation adds extra warmth and cold-weather protection. Other features include a fleece palm lining, molded EVA on the back of the hands and abrasion-resistant goat leather strips on the palms.
Outdoor Research excel at designing gloves and mitts and unsurprisingly the Lucent Heated Mitts have won plenty of awards. The mitts by themselves are very capable of keeping your hands warm without the help of the heating system thanks to the high loft insulation. But for days when conditions get worse, the built in ALTIHeat heating system will definitely come to your rescue.
ALTIHeat offers three levels of electronic heat, providing comfort across a range of temperatures. The rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery is supplied with it's own charger and can last for up to 8 hours on the low setting. It's simple to use, you just press the button on the cuff of the glove and the electricity flows though, warming resistors at the fingers and thumbs. I particularly like the fact the button changes colour to indicate what heating level you've got it on.
The batteries fit nicely into the little pockets on each mitt and are quite light in weight as far as batteries go. In fact you don't really notice they're in once you've got them on. The mitts come with there own carrying case to keep the mitts, charger and batteries all together. Not the most compact mitts but definitely one of the warmest. Ideal for bitter cold winter skiing, snowboarding, mountaineering or any other activity in which ultra warm mitts are needed.
